If you still haven’t gotten yourself a new phone or if you are looking for a cheap steal, then MetroPCS has got something for you. ZTE Avid 4 is out in MetroPCS and just like its brothers in the ZTE family, it is mid-ranged price and a perfect budget phone for anyone who wants value for money more than fancy brands or flagships.
The phone comes at a bargain price of $39USD (*after all discount and rebates) without contract and you can easily pick one from any MetroPCS stores near you. If this phone doesn’t convince you enough or if you are looking for more options you can take a look at these MetroPCS Phones of 2017 Under $100USD.
You’ll be amazed how far your one hundred bucks is going to get you, but for now, let’s take a look at what ZTE Avid 4 has got to offer by comparing it to other phones in the budget phone department.

ZTE Avid 4 isn’t a show-stopper type because it doesn’t have a glossy glass front and back cover, but what it boasts instead is a big 5” screen with an FWVGA display. It does look like a mini ZTE Blade Z Max, standing at 6”, which you can get at a meager *$99 (after all discount and rebate offers).
It is 4G LTE enabled which runs perfectly on the fast MetroPCS network. The biggest caveat on this specific model is that it comes only in one color – BLACK. On the other hand, if you are fan of headsets, this phone will not disappoint you because it has a 3.5mm headphone jack sitting at the top.
Unlike most mid-range phones, this ZTE Avid 4 doesn’t have any fingerprint sensors for security so you’ll have to stick with the basic password or pin to lock your phone.
The ZTE Avid 4 also has a clean and spacious dock that gives you the basic apps and features like most Android devices. It’s running on Ice Cream Sandwich and it has 1.1GHz Quad Core Processor, so you can consider that it is fast, interactive, and smooth when using multiple apps at the same time.
The phone’s Settings is organized just like any stock Android. It has 32GB ROM and 2GB RAM which gives a pretty decent amount of storage for all your pictures and a seamless music and video streaming, and mobile gaming. The internal memory is unfortunately not expandable via MicroSD Card but only up to 32GB.
The phone is also pretty straightforward to use – that is if you are used to using Android.
Camera and Battery Life
The battery life in the ZTE Avid 4 is pretty disappointing because it only has an average of 9 hours talk time from its 2520mAh battery. And compared to the ZTE Blade Z Max it does come almost half the battery life because it has a whopping 4080mAh and can handle up to 31 hours of talk time.
You can use its USB port to charge it or in transferring data from your phone to your computer or vise versa.
This phone isn’t really the best in the mid-range camera department but it prides a few features that you might also like. It has a 5MP autofocus main camera. You can take videos in Panorama mode and you can also take photos while recording a video at the same time.
Other than this, the camera on this one is pretty average and wouldn’t stand out in the tight mid-range or budget phone competition. It is not even on par with other ZTE released mid-range phones. However, considering the price, it surely is a bang for the buck.
The ZTE Avid 4 wouldn’t really stand out compared to its other ZTE brothers nor to other mid-range phones out there. Nonetheless, considering its specs and features, we can safely assume that it does more for its price tag.
